Meet Jacquelyn and Ben
Hello and Welcome!
Hi there! I’m Ben. As a UNITEC graduate of the New Zealand Masters of Osteopathy course, I started working at Mangawhai Osteopathy in 2018. The philosophy of the clinic and Jacquelyn’s passion for Osteopathy meant that I was drawn to the ethos and values of Mangawhai Osteopathy.
My name is Jacquelyn Schirmer. I am a trained UK Osteopath, now registered in New Zealand and a fully qualified yoga and Pilates teacher. I love Osteopathy! It continues to amaze me in it’s scope and ability to see the health in the body rather than just focusing on disease.
We have a special interest in hypermobility and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
Our mission is to deliver the best possible osteopathic health care via manual therapy, rehabilitation and contemporary health care advice.
Welcome from Ben, Jacquelyn, Martin & Wendy
Ben (osteopath) works with new patients over 6 years old
My running injuries - I recommend you see Ben.
Ben fixed my ankle and thumb. Who'd have thought osteopathy does that too!
What a lovely space! Ben has been fantastic at helping me with my ankle and thumb during my time in Mangawhai. He was highly professional and caring! He is very genuine and passionate about his work. Everyone there will do everything they can to help you heal 💛
My newborn: wind and crying gone!
Back pain - thanks Ben.
Bladder prolapse and leaking after childbirth.
I feel like superwoman!
Anyway, just thought that was an “a-haaaa!” moment… I did you proud…. 🙂
